Hi,

Welcome to Fixya. May i know if the operating system is already installed on the hard drive if you set the hard drive to the first boot priority and the operating system is installed on it, it will not ask the floopy drive for the bootable device. If there is no bootable device found on the system, the system will attempt to boot from the next defined drive

Thanks

Change boot cd rom bios300


Your IBM 300 series desktop computer is normally set to boot its operating system directly from the installed hard disk drive.
There are some cases where you may want to boot from a different device, such as loading from the floppy drive to install a new operating system.
In order to change the boot order on the IBM computer you need to access the Basic Input Output System (BIOS) menu.

Close any applications that are still running.
Turn off the IBM 300PI computer and then turn it back on again.
Tap the "F1" key when the "Configuration/Setup Utility" prompt appears at the bottom of the screen.
Tap the down arrow key four times to highlight the "Start Options" entry.


Press the Enter key.
Highlight the "Startup Sequence" entry and then press Enter again.

Scroll down and highlight "First Startup Device."
Press Enter. Scroll through the list of available boot order devices.
Highlight the device you want to use, such as "CD Drive" or "Floppy Drive," and press Enter.

Press the "Escape" key twice.
Highlight "Save Settings" and then tap Enter.
Power off the IBM computer and then power it back on.

Problem with my PC's working


There's any number of reasons why you would experience such problems and also various solutions that might work.
- One of the keys on your PS2 connected keyboard might be stuck and your PC's BIOS assumes you're trying to boot from your floppy drive at the boot up sequence. Check your motherboard's manual for what key that might be and visually inspect it if it's stuck or there's signs of any el. conducting liquids under it or around its base. If such is the case, try rocking the stuck key gently until it gives and returns to its proper position or help it up with a toothpick. You can also use a dull tipped tootpick or soft cotton earbud to clean underneath it, if needed.
- Your PC's BIOS is set so that floppy drive is your first boot device and you forgot to remove non-system floppy disk in it. Remove the disk from the drive and see if your error disappears.
- Your floppy disk drive (FDD) might be corrupt and causing other el. problems on your motherboard, possibly including confusion in the sleep states of your PC. Try disconnecting the power cord off your FDD and see if that helps.
- If you don't really need your floppy disk drive, go to your motherboards BIOS (see manual for how to do that or follow on-screen instructions at boot-up sequence) and either disable your FDD completely, or change the boot-up order so it's not listed before your optical drive and your hard drive. Save changes and reboot.
- Your floppy disk drive might be dead and your motherboard's controller has problems reading from it (regardless if there's disk in it or not). Disconnect power cord and the signal cable from your floppy drive and reboot your PC.
Of course, it could be something else and you'll have to clarify exactly what error codes you get. Still, maybe one of the suggestions above do the trick ;)

To remove the message just go to bios, press f2 when you turn on your computer, press enter in boot menu, set first boot in hdd and second boot in cdroom (using + - key)and disable boot from floppy by pressing the space bar
Go to advance and if there is any setting about swap or seek from floppy make it disable

Error loading o.s windows xp


If you want to try booting from safe mode, start the machine and press F8 until you get a boot menu, but you getting the 'Error Loading OS' message sort of suggests your relative may have wiped the harddrive before handing the machine off to you, which would mean there will be nothing there to recover from.
Sounds as if the PC is set to boot from the harddrive, so your easiest fix would be to get into the bios settings at startup and set your 'boot order' to read from your optical drive (cd or DVD) first- Put YOUR copy of XP in and away you go!
Another option would be to go to bootdisks,com and download a Win'98 boot floppy image with CD-Rom drivers, & unzip the image to a 3.5 floppy, but that's the long way around.

Boot cd problems


You can't just put the windows cd in your cd rom drive. If your going to change your boot order (to cd), then you HAVE TO use a BOOTABLE cd. That means a bootup disk with all the correct bootable files for WINXP. Same with a floppy. Change your boot order to a floppy....and in order to bootup windows, you MUST HAVE the bootable files ON THE floppy. In your case...the cd. The windows xp does not have the bootable files since it is only used for install and reinstall.

Create a bootable CD or floppy (((from someone elses WINXP pc or laptop))). There is a feature that allows you to do that. Then when you boot to cd it will start windows and give you options.

I have a HP 8595c computer. I put a DVD in and it froze. I restarted the computer and now it won't boot up proberly. I get this message. "Non-System disk or disk error Replace and strike any key...


Non-System Disk or Disk Error results when the Basic Input/Output System (BIOS) cannot find the boot sector or the master boot record is missing or damaged; i.e. the device does not have bootable media. The BIOS searches drives in the order usually specified in the CMOS Setup. This order is often, but not always, A: (floppy drive), C: (first partition on the hard disk)… The error will occur during startup if the CMOS is set so the BIOS seeks the floppy drive first and a non-bootable (or blank) floppy is in (was left in) the floppy drive. Other causes include:

No bootable partition on a hard disk drive
  • A defective hard disk drive
  • The CMOS drive settings (parameters) are not correct for the boot device
  • Defective floppy
  • Defective floppy drive
  • A virus

    Enter BIOS, at start up press Delete key every couple of seconds. PC vary, some require pressing the F1 key or F2 and others reqire F10. Once in the BIOS you'll need change your boot order. Again PC's BIOS's vary. Usually Floppy is first, CDROM second and Hd 3'rd. Save Bios and restart. If you boot media is a floppy disk your PC will go there 1'st, than to the CDROM. If boot media still is not seen. Check connectors to the floppy and or CD make sure cables and power connectors are tight.
